Holiday Funtimes!

11/30/2013

 
HOLIDAY HOURS are Tuesday-Saturday 11-7 and Sunday 12-5
all December (except xmas day)


This is the place to get small things!
Most of the merchandise at Ferdinand is under $10, and for the holidays I really focus on stocking stuffers and hostess gifts and small thoughtful presents you can give to friends to let them know you care and are thinking of them. 
This year I have gone bananas for pipe cleaners and have make a million ornaments. This might not sound like much but these are really special. Here are a few photos. Come see for yourself at Ferdinand!
 
 
Gluing googly eyes on things is a hilarious hobby I have here at Ferdinand, and I have become a connoisseur of eyeballs. There's tiny 3mm ones and sleepy eyelash ones, ones with realistic iris's (weird!) also cat eyes, bug eyes, cartoon eyes, owl eyes, and frog eyes. Eyes with every color google inside, different shapes... I dabble and buy all the novelty ones but my favorite are the classic googlies everybody knows and loves, and the sleepy eyelash ones!

Currently I am making tons of stocking stuffer googly eye plant journals. I've made a little hypnotic film showcasing them...

ENJOY!
 

Candle making

I have had a few false starts with candles, but this fall I decided to see it through. Instantly, I acquired about 70 suitable containers. I started to research and experiment and now there are tea cup candles for sale at Ferdinand!

These are your basic soy wax candles. The soy beans are grown in the US, and the tea cups and juice glasses are vintage. The scents reminds me of a fancy french flower shop. I made gardenia, white tea and ginger and a blend that's more of a musk.
